Penbryn Beach

Penbryn is a large sandy beach backed by a dune system and cliffs. The beach is operated by the National Trust and running across it is a small stream known as the Nant Hoffnant. Penbryn is a very rural beach with only a small amount of parking. The majority of the parking is a few hundred metres back up the valley at Penbryn village. The beach is popular with surfers, canoeists and kayakers. There are many caravan parks in the area, offering a wide range of facilities and the beach is popular as a stop-off point for walkers using the Ceredigion coastal path.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
